Characterized by a distinctive, one-of-a-kind beauty, Amanda Seyfried mesmerizes everyone with her blue eyes and long, blonde hairstyle. The 25-year-old actress has something special that makes her so delightful and sweet, yet uncommon and surreal. In the March 2011 issue of “Interview” magazine, Amanda Seyfried looks absolutely out of this world in a shoot photographed by Mikael Jansson.
As for the interview in the magazine, this is rather unusual also, Amanda sharing numerous things to Justin Timberlake with whom she stars in the futuristic thriller “Now”. Since the two talked on the phone, Amanda told the singer she is not wearing any clothes. “Well, if that’s how you’d like to be interviewed, then that’s totally fine,” replied Justin. “I’m most comfortable in my birthday suit,” she said.
Speaking about her latest film “Red Hiding Hood”, Amanda told Timberlake that “aside from the major supernatural element to it, like the wolf speaking, it felt pretty grounded. We applied modern-day relationship dynamics to the story. It’s a thriller, it’s a whodunit, and it could have taken place during any period in history. But our version is set in medieval times, which were really romantic and gothic, so it’s a bit darker.”
She also makes a comparison between “Red Riding Hood” and “The Twilight Saga”. “I think it’s hard not to compare Red Riding Hood because Catherine [Hardwicke] directed the first Twilight. But Red Riding Hood is a very different film. I mean, yeah, there’s a love triangle, and people can easily compare the relationship between Kristen Stewart and those two guys in Twilight to the Valerie, Henry, and Peter characters in this movie, but we have so many elements that make it completely different,” she says.
In the article, Amanda also opens up and speaks about her decision to go to art school. “I went to art school when I was little. I played a little kick ball. I was sort of into everything because I had too much energy and I didn’t know where to put it. When I was a preteen, I got into singing, and became really obsessed with it. But then, of course, that didn’t work out,” she told Timberlake.
On acting and singing and the control of an actor or musician, she says that “when you’re on stage as a musician, it’s just you, isn’t it? You’re in your own world. You control it. You decide how far you go. You decide everything. It must be hard for you, especially when you’re so used to performing in that kind of situation, to come into the situation of working on a film and lose all of that control that you’re used to having.”
“I actually find it liberating to give up control. It’s nice for me. What’s been more of a battle for me throughout the process of moving into acting is that I feel like I have to keep reassuring people that I’m not an asshole. [both laugh] There is a stigma that comes from being on stage and being a musician,” Timberlake responded.
